RUSH: Ann in Brooklyn, I’m glad you waited. You’re up next on Open Line Friday. Hi.
CALLER: Oh, this is the best moment of my day, maybe my year. Thank you so much.
RUSH: It’s my pleasure.
CALLER: I actually called to make a remark about Hillary, but can I please slip in a little thing on religion and freedom?
CALLER: Because religion, without freedom, is exactly what radical Islam is. It’s tyranny. They’re a strong religion but no freedom, whereas freedom without religion is anarchy and total hedonism, which is the modern Liberal Party.
RUSH: Yes. That’s a great way of illustrating John Adams being correct on this.
CALLER: And you are so profound. Your programs get deeper and better every single week. It’s just something new and wonderful.
RUSH: Well, thank you very much.
CALLER: But the remark I wanted to make about Hillary —
RUSH: I actually think they get better by the day, but —
CALLER: (laughter) I’m going to join you there.
RUSH: — that’s a minor point.
CALLER: Yeah, you do. I was listening to Hillary sobbing about the hostage crisis in New Hampshire, and she provided perfect cannonball fodder for the Republican Party when she said, in the face of a small hostage crisis, that she was ‘bewildered and confused and angry.’ Listen, if one hostage in an office can do this, what would an A-bomb do to her?
RUSH: Or a bunch of American hostages at an embassy in another country.
CALLER: Sure. She would be absolutely — please forgive me — wetting her pants.
RUSH: That is a brilliant observation, Ann, and it’s perfectly illustrative of our times. Mrs. Clinton was probably none of that. She thought it important to SAY that because that’s what would resonate with our feelings-obsessed culture.
CALLER: Mmm-hmm. Again, back to the hedonism.
RUSH: Exactly right. This is about letting people know that she knows how they feel.
CALLER: Does she feel their pain? Ha-ha.
RUSH: Yeah, well… (laughing) I don’t know about that but she’s going to cause a lot if she gets a chance.
CALLER: Just keep on entertaining and informing and teaching us every day.
RUSH: Well, you’re so sweet! You’re just so nice. I appreciate that.
CALLER: Take care.
RUSH: Thanks, Ann. Bye-bye.
